Sri Lanka recall Maharoof, Fernando

Sri Lanka recalled fast bowlers Dilhara Fernando and Farveez Maharoof for the ICC Champions Trophy in Pakistan next month.

Fernando returns after recovering from a leg injury and Maharoof has recovered from a side strain, although the selectors have decided he should not be rushed back for the India series.

All-rounder Kaushal Weeraratne will replace Maharoof for the five-match one-day series against India which starts in Dambulla on Aug. 18.

The 15-man squad will be reduced to 14 for the India series as Jehan Mubarak will be travelling with the A team to South Africa.

The Champions Trophy runs from September 11 to 28.

Squad for India series:

Mahela Jayawardene (captain), Sanath Jayasuriya, Kumar Sangakkara, Chamara Kapugedera, Chamara Silva, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Chaminda Vaas, Kaushal Weeraratne, Thilan Thushara, Nuwan Kulasekera, Muttiah Muralitharan, Ajantha Mendis, Mahela Udawatte, Dilhara Fernando.
